Nice post AR, especially the line "(My apologies to anyone on the Cleveland Tourism Board who happens to be an avid forum reader. Great town. What’s not to like about the home of kielbasa, Pere Ubu, ...)" - still smiling. I really like their major Art Museum - nice, interesting collection and beautiful building on the inside.

Used to be that Dark Stars and Other ones were not listed on tapes as broken up with 'Drums' or 'Phil and Bill' and the like.

I agree with Cliff that with Rotterdam '72, the drums are integral, as with Paris 5/3 and 4. The also goes for the Bass Solo and Bass and Drums from Paris 5/3 which are indeed integral to the development of that night's multi-faceted Other One. The same could be said of countless Dark Stars and Other Ones from '70 through '74.

I'll second the kudos for the Art Museum. I saw Christian McBride play a show there, so they also get some good music in there and the summer I lived there I enjoyed the free concerts at the RNR HOF - my one and only chance to see Pop Staples (with Mavis and the gals).

BD, I'm with you on their concerts, as the Museum's music programming has been exceptional for the last few years from what I can tell. I've been following it from afar and wishing I could be there for more than a few of their shows. . . . 'in the strangest of places . . .'

And it's Number One contribution to art and literature ... Spaceman Spiff! You do know, of course, that Calvin and Hobbes are from Chagrin Falls?

Yes, the unfortunately named Chagrin Falls. So much negativity in two little words.

Yes, absolutely. Really sad to have lost him. I knew him and Joyce a bit way back when. As did a lot of people. Brilliant guy, great artist. Truly a local (and national) institution ...
